A beautiful moody nursery in dark gray! It is amazing how the colors pop out in this room and I love the accessories. Owls decorate every corner of this nursery!

This mid century dresser had me at hello! Lovely piece and great idea to use such an interesting vintage furniture instead of an ordinary changing table.

The carpet is lovely and the trees on the wall are wall decals.

A Tree In Your Living Room

I love trees inside the house, a touch of mother nature! Made of natural materials or not, they are beautiful all the same. Have a look at this clever structure. It is designed by Italian architect Puccio Davide Florian accordingly to accomodate a TV screen, books, cds and ornaments. There is a place for everything!

And of course there are lights on the branches to create atmosphere and drama!

The designer says that the idea was to bring a playful sense of nature in the space, so  custom wall graphic with botanical and animal illustrations and a tree were designed as part of the concept for the space. A colorful palette of laminates and linoleum flooring were chosen for durability and simplicity. Custom furniture including reception desk, display shelves, cabinets and manicure tables were designed specifically for the project as well. I love the cute car seats! I think it might be a hard task to get your kid of them!! What a nice way to entertain your children while doing their hair.
